"I love what I do and I'm not going anywhere!"

Posted June 7th, 2010 @ 12:06pm

"I love what I do and I'm not going anywhere!"

This is what all of us should be saying today? "I love what I do and I'm not going anywhere!"... a quote from Sandra Bullock during her acceptance speech at the MTV Generation Awards June 2010. She took the words right out of my mouth... "I love what I do and I am not going anywhere!"

I decided long ago, maybe even as early as a small child that I knew there was more to life than being a passenger... I've always wanted to be the driver and mentor of what is passionate in my heart - speaking and writing to share what I have learned throughout my life experiences, good and bad, with all of you. Because it is through the sharing of our life experiences that we learn and grow from each other.

I've had many hard knocks, and been blindsided so many times in life that today I refer to myself as not an "old woman breathing" but a "well marinated woman very much alive". With life, I have also realized that "it" whatever "it" is, happens for a reason, even when it's wrong or when it's painful and we feel lost and broken. The "its" in my life were the result of many pivotal turns I experienced. From cradle to mid-adulthood, my life was filled with daily torture and abuse from those who claimed to love me, physical, sexual and emotional pain and abandonment. I always felt like a piece of lost luggage in an airport at the 11th hour going round and round on the baggage claim with no one there to grab me, claim me, love me and nurture me. But this is where I turned my life around. This is where I learned to take trauma and turn it into triumph!

Today it feels like I'm flying... I'm free and I can do what I love to do... helping others transition their lives. I love to travel the world making a difference in all of your lives. It isn't about me, it's about you and how can I help you make healthy choices and changes in your life so you too can fly. And maybe someday we will meet and fly together.

Today I give myself the power that I never thought I had and so can you... because remember, there was a time in my life, and I'm sure a time in your life, where I allowed others to define who I was and what I was capable of doing in my life. No more... over the past 48 years of my life I have learned many time tested coping strategies that work through my Think / Feel / Do Lifestyle that has helped me become my own hero in what I love to do. And today, I'm free to do what I love to do without others dictating to me that I'm dreaming and I should go out and get a "real job" and last…what I'm doing is impossible. I know if I can do this, you can too.

So enough about me... what are you doing daily to be your own hero? Do you see yourself and the world around you through the eyes of love or hate? How long do you want to do this before you are ready to snap out of your funk? I know in my life I have always been a high strung, passionate driven woman who knows what she wants, but it's always a huge plus to have a buddy pal when making serious life changes. I don't expect you to do this alone, so lean on me…I will be your new buddy pal.

So stay tuned to my blog café by subscribing, and I will help you find the power within that you never thought you had, so you too can say "I love what I do and I'm not going anywhere!"
